Our patient from Houston Heights came to us needing to have his front tooth removed. This tooth had a previous childhood injury and was weakened from this trauma.
The fractured tooth was no longer savable. After working with the surgeon to place the implant, our patient decided that he would like to improve his whole smile, not just fix the one front tooth. Dr. Neela Patel partnered with our master lab, and the surgeon to time the tooth removal and the temporaries so that our patient would not have to be without a front tooth. We designed a bite that would protect the implant and his other front teeth from further trauma. Our patient was able to give us input and feedback of what felt comfortable, and what he liked in so that his custom temporaries became the blueprint for his final restorations.
